Be wary of Nigerian Hotels that do not have web presence

Many years ago, searching for hotel information in Lagos is almost as difficult as climbing the legendary Olumo rock in Abeokuta. It was like most Nigerian hotels had something against the internet and would never contemplate having a website. What for? Lagos bound travellers# then depended on the limited information they could glean from their friends, family members, etc.

There are over 43million internet users in Nigeria as at June2010 representing almost 29% of Nigerian total population according to a recent ITU statistics. So you stop and ask yourself why a 21st century hotel will not want to have a web presence? Some Nigerian Hotels are beginning to realise the potential of using the internet to boost sales.

A number of these hotels now have their own websites, but they deliberately provided very limited information about their facilities, and in some cases completely remove their hotel prices from their websites! Potential guests are expected to call the hotels first to get this information. Well, thank God for the GSM phones, at least people can now call hotels on their mobile phones -this was not possible some few years ago when mobile phones were status symbols in Nigeria

But hey, lets face it, forcing potential guests to call Lagos hotels first to get their prices is punishment especially if these are potential guests living abroad like Europe or America. This is because they are already incurring international phone cost even before booking the hotel all in the name of calling first to get hotel details.

Moreover, Hotels that hide their prices may be hiding more than just prices; perhaps they are hiding more serious details like hidden charges, lack of adequate security for their guests, etc. Some unsuspecting guests may have been committed to them -or shall we say enter into their traps before discovering what this hidden information is,.
Therefore, if you are searching for a good hotel to stay in Lagos, be wary of hotels that do not publish their nightly rates on their websites. Some people argued that not publishing the hotel rate means the hotels do not give ammunitions to their competitors. This is unadulterated nonsense.
